Police responding to a report of a suspected impaired driver wound up arresting a man in possession of $70,000-worth of cocaine. Salmon Arm Staff Sgt. Scott West said approximately 1,500 doses of cocaine have been removed from the street as a result of the Tuesday, July 14 arrest of a 26-year-old male. “It is worth even more at the street level where it’s sold at the gram level,” West commented regarding the seized drugs. The arrest stemmed from a 2 a.m. report alerting Salmon Arm RCMP to a possible impaired driver eastbound on the Trans-Canada Highway. West said officers found the vehicle and, what began as an investigation under the Motor Vehicle Act, became a Controlled Drugs and Substances Act investigation. “The 26-year-old male driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was arrested and a search by RCMP officers located one-and-a-half kilograms of cocaine,” said West. The cocaine was seized and the man is being held in custody in Salmon Arm. West said the destination of the drugs is unknown at this time. In June, West told Salmon Arm Council drug charges have increased in the community due to ongoing work by plainclothes officers targeting new and known drug dealers.

Edmonton woman dies in boat accident By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Authorities continue to investigate the death of a 22-year-old Alberta woman who was killed in a boating accident Friday on Shuswap Lake. The BC Coroners Service stated Monday, July 13 that Andrea Mary Jacura, 22,

of Edmonton, Alta., died as a result of severe injuries sustained after she was caught in a houseboat’s propeller while in waters near the popular Neilson Beach. “Ms. Jacura had just entered the lake waters in the early afternoon of July 10… when she was caught by a houseboat propeller. She sus-

tained severe injuries and died at the scene.” Sicamous RCMP Const. Pat Pyper said police were notified of the accident when a request for assistance was received at approximately 2:45 p.m. from the BC Ambulance Service. Upon arrival, responding emergency service personnel

learned the victim had already succumbed to her injuries. “My understanding is the young girl was behind (the vessel) swimming while the pilot of the boat was trying to dock it on the beach. The boat was put into reverse…, the driver didn’t know they were back there,” said Pyper.

Burnout back on Main By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Tires will once again be smoking downtown. The popular burnout portion of this year’s Summer Stomp and Burnout, July 16 to 19, has been moved back to Main Street. Mayor Terry Rysz confirms the burnout event has been moved back downtown from the Summer Stomp grounds at the municipal dog park where it

was to occur. In past years, the burnout has been held on the west end of Main Street. Rysz says concerns about the event prompted the district and organizers to move the burnout to the Stomp grounds. “What we’re going to do is, because there’s been some concerns regarding the smoke and whatever else, we’re going to move that part of the show on Main Street

to the far east end, more in front of the old jail… away from the other vendors down at the bottom side,” said Rysz, adding one of the biggest concerns had to do with marks being left on the street. “You know they wash off eventually. “No matter how we do this, it seems there’s not a real right model. But at the same time, it’s all about entertainment and trying to put an event on for the

community and I think we’re going to do the very best we can along with the organizer of the Stomp.” The burnout is traditionally part of the day of “family-friendly” events, this year being held on Saturday, July 18. The day will also include stunt jumpers and riders and live entertainment including bands Bender, Breaking Curfew and Shoe Swap.

Enderby cliff rescue Vernon Search and Rescue crews were called into action after a woman became stranded on the Enderby Cliffs on July 14. The woman, who is in her 30s, went hiking alone Tuesday afternoon. “She had never been there before, it’s a difficult climb and it was hot out. She got exhausted,” said Leigh

Pearson, with Vernon Search and Rescue. Instead of sticking to the trail, the woman attempted to take a shortcut across country. The woman used a cellular phone to call for help and it took search volunteers two hours to walk into the area. A helicopter was used to remove the woman from the scene.

New penalties eyed for careless fire starts By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

The B.C. government is reviewing its penalties for those who start forest fires with campfires or discarded cigarette butts, as losses pile up from a severe early fire season. Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Mike Morris has been assigned to the review, as the province’s forest fire crews continue to work flat-out to keep up with lightning-caused fires and those caused by human carelessness. Morris said he will examine what new penalties can be effectively enforced. “For example, should we be banning those who break fire bans from attending our provincial parks?” Morris said. “Should we look at larger fines up to and including possibly of the impoundment of vehicles for those who flick lit cigarette butts out of their windows?” One tree faller has been killed as the B.C. Wildfire Service continues

to work against 175 active wildfires, down from 200 since the start of the week due to cooler weather and showers. The service has tackled more than 1,000 forest fires so far this year, about a third of them human caused. “There are some who have suggested you can’t legislate against stupidity,” Forests Minister Steve Thomson said. “But if exploring the idea of increasing fines or acting on ideas that mean more people will get the message, I think we should be prepared to have a look at it.” Witnesses can report careless smokers or breaches of the provincewide outdoor fire ban with the same phone numbers as to report wildfires, 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on a mobile phone. Of the 14 new fires Monday, two are suspected to have been humancaused. About 375 of this season’s fires are listed as human-caused, burning 44,000 hectares.

summer offers insight on future

To paraphrase Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, water and power and fire, oh my! Unlike Dorothy’s fears of walking through the unknown — and creepy — forest, the fear of forest fires, of power outages and water shortages are only too real this summer for citizens of the Okanagan. Hot dry weather has communities raising a flag on water usage, B.C. Hydro expressing concern about power usage across the province and the Kamloops Fire Centre declaring a region-wide ban on campfires. Taken together, it all sounds a little bit apocalyptic. But we haven’t reached the end of times just yet — these are necessary precautions being taken by those in positions of authority. Human-caused fires eat up resources that could be used fighting naturally caused fires and air conditioners and fans add to the load on an already stressed electrical grid. As for water supply, estimates predict that in three decades, about one-third of the world’s population will suffer from chronic water shortages. Each year, global water consumption rises by two to three per cent, while the total supply of fresh water remains relatively constant. So perhaps it’s time to take notice of these times, when our systems are being pressed to the limit and wonder what it might be like in years to come, when severe restrictions are placed on power and water as a daily measure. Sure, conserving a few drops of water here and there might not seem like a lot, but those drops add up fast. And developing a conservationist attitude now, both as individuals and as a community, is the path to ensuring there will be resources available for our grandchildren. — Penticton Western News

OpiniOn

Published by Black Press Ltd. 171 Shuswap Street NW, Salmon Arm, B.C.

Watching, waiting and learning The other morning, I found myself casting just downstream from a couple of well-heeled anglers who were sporting some rather fancy fishing gear. Both appeared to have high-end graphite rods with reels that would have set them back at least four or five hundred dollars. I could tell at a glance from their vests they were both serious about both their fishing and their attire – less so, it seemed about their casting stroke. One was casting with long, smooth, graceful loops. His flies were landing on the water with a subtleness and ease that could only be described as impressive. The other was casting as if being pestered by an angry wasp. The odd thing though, it was the angler with the less-than-perfect casting technique that seemed to be catching more fish. The fellow with the lessthan-perfect presentation caught fish because he seemed to know just where to cast. From my vantage point,

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray I could see the runs and riffles, as well as the several deeper pools that looked to have fish-holding potential. The angler making the graceful casts seemed to be casting and presenting his fly just short of the feeding zone, while the other fellow was placing his fly right in line and just ahead of fish that were actively cruising in search of food. Being able to present your fly to fish feeding in a given area is key to success. Presenting your fly to fish feeding on the surface of the water requires accuracy and a subtle presentation – accuracy over distance. Getting your fly to fish feeding below the surface

requires a knowledge of where fish are feeding. Presenting the right fly to potentially interested fish is what fly fishing is all about. As I stood there watching both anglers, I made a number of mental notes as to where the fish were most actively feeding, what insect hatches were coming off and what patterns I had with me in my fly boxes that might most closely match the hatch. I also made a mental note of which waters I figured to move into once the pair upstream moved on. It was a while that I watched and waited. During that time I learned something else from the two anglers. I began to realize just how bad my own casting habits have become. While admiring the one angler with his smooth casting stroke and gentle presentation, a lot of my own casting shortcomings started to become all too apparent in the other angler’s casting technique. From tailing loops to back casts that every now and then touch the leaves on the

branches behind me, I’m almost as bad at casting now as when I started fly fishing some 45 years ago. It’s just that now I choose to ignore my mistakes rather than correct them. It’s not that I don’t know how to cast. It’s just that sometimes I get lazy. If I make a back-cast that removes a leaf on a tree behind me, or stop too soon on my front cast, so what. I can usually live with my lessthan-perfect casting. I know I can always do better next cast. Do I worry about my leesthan-perfect casting? No, not really. Do I catch fish? Yes. Maybe not as many as I could if I paid more attention to doing more things the right way. But then again, how many fish does any one person really have to catch? All I know is that I may not do some things the way I should when it comes to casting, or even fishing for that matter, but I do know this: I certainly do enjoy being out there on the waters and that’s got to count for something.

Still the hardest word to say GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer It’s hard to say sorry, but it’s even harder to say you’re sorry for a genocide. The word just sticks in the throats of those who should be saying it, as the Turks have been demonstrating for the past hundred years in the case of the Armenians of eastern Anatolia. And the Serbs have just shown themselves to be just as tongue-tied in the case of the Bosnian Muslims slaughtered at Srebrenica. Saturday was the 20th anniversary of the murder of between 7,000 and 8,000 people when Srebrenica was taken by Bosnian Serb forces in 1995. The town’s population was swollen by refugees who had fled there to escape the “ethnic cleansing” that was being carried out against Muslims elsewhere in eastern Bosnia, because it was a United Nations-designated “safe area” defended by NATO troops. Or rather, not defended. When the Bosnian Serbs, having surrounded Srebrenica for three years, finally moved to take it in July 1995, the UN

and NATO commanders refused to use air strikes to stop them. And the Dutch troops who were there to protect the town decided they’d rather live and let unarmed civilians die. So all the Bosnian Muslim men and boys between the ages of 14 and 70 were loaded onto buses – the Dutch soldiers helped to separate them from the women and children – and driven up the road a few kilometres. Then they were shot by Serbian killing squads, and buried by bulldozers. It took four days to murder them all. The crime has been formally declared a genocide by the UN war crimes tribunal for former Yugoslavia. Both the Bosnian Serb president of the time, Radovan Karadzic, and the Serban military commander at Srebrenica, General Ratko Mladic, are awaiting verdicts in trials for directing genocide. You would think that even the Serbs cannot deny it was a genocide, but you would be wrong. There are certainly some Serbs, like journalist Dusan Masic, who are willing to call it what it is. His idea was to have 7,000 volunteers lie on the ground before the National Assembly in Belgrade on Saturday, symbolising the approximate number of Muslim victims at Srebrenica. “On July 11, while the eyes of the whole

“Most Serbs would acknowledge that their side did some bad things during the Balkan wars of the ’90s, but they would add that every side did.” When right-wing groups threatened to disrupt the demonstration last Thursday, Stefanovic banned it in order to guarantee “peace and security in the whole of Serbia.” And the Serbian government had already asked Russia to veto a UN Security Council resolution describing the Srebrenica massacre as a “genocide”. Russia was happy to oblige, and vetoed it on Wednesday. B.C.S.P.C.A. (Shuswap)

Maybe Moscow was just sucking up to the Serbs, whom it would like to steer away from their current ambition to join the European Union – but maybe President Vladimir Putin was also thinking that he didn’t want any precedent for some future attempt to describe what he did during the second Chechen war in 1999-2002 as a genocide. Words matter. Serbia’s Prime Minister Aleksandr Vucic, who seems to have changed his mind about Srebrenica since his early days in Serbian politics, still cannot bring himself to use the word “genocide” when he talks about it. Back in 1995, Vucic was a radical nationalist who declared in the Serbian National Assembly, only a few days after the Srebrenica massacre, that “If you kill one Serb, we will kill 100 Muslims.” By 2010, however, he was saying that a “horrible crime was committed in Srebrenica.” Vucic even traveled to Srebrenica on Saturday to take part in the commemoration of the events of 20 years ago, a brave gesture for a Serbian prime minister who must contend with an electorate most of whom do not want to admit that Serbs did anything especially wrong. But he still doesn’t dare say the word “genocide.” The voters would never forgive him. Most Serbs would

world are on the killing fields near Srebrenica”, he said, “we want to send a different picture from Belgrade.” “This will not be a story about the current regime, which has failed to define itself in relation to the crime that happened 20 years ago,” he continued, “or about a place where you can still buy souvenirs with images of Karadzic and Mladic. It will be a story about... a better Serbia.” But the better Serbia has not actually arrived yet. Serbia’s interior minister, Nebojsa Stefanovic, didn’t like the picture Masic wanted to send.

acknowledge their side did some bad things during the Balkan wars of the ’90s, but they would add that every side did. They will not accept the use of the word “genocide” – whereas that is the one word Bosnian Muslims have to hear before they can believe the Serbs have finally grasped the nature and scale of their crime. That’s why, when Vucic was at Srebrenica paying his respects in the cemetery, some Bosnian Muslims started throwing stones at him. His glasses were broken, and his security detail had to hustle him away. It was a stupid, shameful act, and the Bosnian Muslim authorities have apologized for it. But like the Turks and the Armenians, the Serbs and their neighbours will never really be reconciled until the Serbs say the magic word.

Cigar boats on Shuswap Lake spark concern By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

Cherilyn Drew enjoys summertime getaways to her cabin on Shuswap Lake north of Herald Park. While she’s happy the lake gives enjoyment to so many, she is alarmed and frustrated by what she says is an increasing number of powerful boats. “I am really noticing more cigar boats on the lake this year – several times a day and it concerns me safety wise,” Drew says. “They’re frightening and I don’t see how they can exist with other activities on the lake.” Drew says prior to this year, she has seen the occasional cigar boat travelling primarily along the south side of the lake. Friends who have a cabin on Anstey Arm have complained they are also seeing many more and their neighbour advised the boats have been banned from Okanagan Lake. “They’re starting to come up the middle of the lake and they’re super loud, like a plane,” Drew says. “And they’re travel-

n The use of cigar and wake boats on Shuswap Lake is worrying to some who view the speeding vessels as a safety concern. ling really close to you so there is no way they could react to a small boat or a kayak.” Drew recounts a rescue she and her brother undertook in Blind Bay when a Rotary exchange student was injured by a boat propeller while she was swimming beyond the buoys. She says it took just 30 seconds to a minute of the boat operator’s inattention for the accident to happen. “I can’t imagine how long a cigar boat would have to react, maybe a millisecond,” Drew says. “It seems crazy with the amount of traffic on the lake. I don’t see that

they’re compatible.” Cpl J.R. Lechky of the Sicamous RCMP detachment understands Drew’s concerns but says the police are only able to conduct safety checks, enforce regulations regarding safety and make sure people have . The only place on Shuswap Lake that has a speed limit is Cinnemousun Narrows. Everywhere else is wide open to boat operators. But Lechky says the new wake-boarding fad has brought a proliferation of ski and wake boats that are a lot louder and a lot more disruptive. “We were out on Canada Day and they’re

just as loud and making twice the wake as the cigar boats,” he said. Lechky says Transport Canada is the federal body responsible for vessel regulations and so far there are none for Shuswap Lake. Okanagan Lake was able to ban cigar boats following a successful application to Transport Canada. “It is not necessarily a problem that will be easily addressed in an immediate time; it’s going to be quite a long time sorting this out,” he said, adding a word of caution to those who operate their boats unsafely. “My own personal belief is, if there is to be an accident,

She has 3 nieces, a new niece or nephew on the way, and a brother with whom she often texts; he always answers right away.

I would find it difficult to believe the guy running that boat wouldn’t be found guilty (in a civil suit).” In a July 10 email, Transport Canada says it is committed to improving safety of navigation and protecting the environment. “Under the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations, local authorities can apply to the federal government to impose restrictions to navigation in specified Canadian waters,” reads the email, noting regulations are amended yearly. “The amendments represent the final stage for a local authority to receive federal approval to restrict navigation in their area. Involved stakeholders working together can often find more timely, effective and affordable solutions.”

Prepare for your splash of fun (NC) With summer just around the corner, Canadians are ready for outdoor barbecues, sunbathing and quick dips in the pool. Whether it’s a hot tub, pond or swimming pool, adding a touch of aqua to your backyard is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors at home. But don’t forget that owning a pool or water feature comes with important responsibilities. According to the Lifesaving Society’s 2014 Drowning Report, nearly 500 Canadians die in water-related accidents annually. And with statistics showing teenagers and young adults at highest risk, it’s more important than ever to keep your water zones danger-free. “Homeowners need to use precautionary methods in the backyard to avoid ac-

cidents,” says Wayne Ross, an insurance expert at Aviva Canada. “Even a simple action like installing a physical barrier to your pond or pool can be life saving.” Ross recommends these tips for added safety in the backyard: 1. Install a fence: Children are naturally curious and will be drawn to a pool or pond so installing a fence can help you breathe an extra sigh of relief. Additionally, using a gate lock or a hot tub safety cover as a precautionary barrier is an inexpensive way to avoid accidents. 2. Check your insurance policy: Contact your insurance broker prior to installing a water zone. You need to advise your insurer of any increased risk to ensure you have protection against

Conserving our fisheries FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes

The Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program was introduced in 2013 and was extended in this year’s budget with an additional $10 million in funding starting next year. Since 2013, this conservation program has invested nearly $16 million in 280 projects across Canada to support the important work of conserving and strengthening our fish-

eries. The program has succeeded by bringing together like-minded partners and their resources to restore, rebuild and rehabilitate recreational fishery habitats across Canada. This is why the program has been extended with more funding. Recreational fishing is no small fry for our economy- in 2010, sport angling generated $8.3 billion for local economies across Canada. Through the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), the Government of Canada invests in various aspects related to commercial fisheries, including science, catch monitoring and management plans. The ministry has just announced funding ap-

Help out at the fest Helping hands are still wanted for this year’s Roots and Blues. While festival organizers have been able to reduce the number of volunteers needed for the three-day musical extravaganza, about 218 are still required. Helpers are needed to work 16 hours, which are broken up into three four-hour shifts and another four-hour shift

for setup the week prior to the festival or teardown. Volunteers receive a free weekend pass, food vouchers and a volunteer appreciation party. Those who would like to volunteer may call 250-833-4096, drop into the office on Fifth Avenue SW or fill out a form online at www.rootsandblues.ca.

provals for 2015 projects and our riding will be receiving nearly half a million dollars for conservation work. Thanks to this funding, important conservation and restoration work at Cooke Creek, the Salmon RiverShuswap Lake delta, Bessette Creek, Cherry Creek and restoration of fisheries habitat on agricultural lands will move forward. All in all, close to $450,000 has been granted to support these projects in our riding. Over the years I have received emails from people close to the issues around fish habitat and fish conservation calling for more action. Our government has done more than any government to protect

and enhance fish populations. Allotting the fish stamp revenue to the Pacific Salmon Foundation is one very significant action taken by our Minister of Fisheries and Oceans. Milton Friedman wrote that “one of the greatest mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.” Our government’s actions show we take the protection of our commercial and recreational fishery resource seriously.

Fires can be beneficial GAIA GARDENING Margo Westaway

So many of our beautiful and precious trees are lost all over the world to storms, floods, fuel, development, farming, logging, bug kill, disease, industry, pollution and forest fires. We all know the terrible impacts these wildfires have on humans and critters, but how do they affect the soil and plants? Recent ecological research has shown that fire is an integral component in the function and biodiversity of many natural habitats, and that some organisms within these communities have adapted to withstand and even exploit wildfires. For example, some plants and trees cannot release their seeds or cones won’t open without the heat and flames, so fires are now regarded as a ‘natural disturbance’ that drives the evolution of species and controls characteristics, rather than destructive. Because of this, land managers are in a constant dilemma whether

to let nature takes its course or allow controlled burns when there are humans and infrastructure pretty well all over the place these days. A ‘fire regime’ describes the characteristics of fire and how it interacts or impacts an ecosystem. For example, low intensity ground (or understory) fires will burn through soil that is rich in organic matter, surface fires will burn through dead plant material that is lying on the ground, crown fires will burn in the tops of shrubs and trees and high intensity fires can destroy everything. Fire intolerant plants tend to be highly flammable and are completely destroyed, sometimes never returning to that community. Fire-tolerant species – or resprouters – are able to withstand a degree of burning and can continue growing despite the damage by storing extra energy in their roots. Fireresistant plants, such as a mature Ponderosa Pine, generally suffer little damage in understory fires because their branches are high and their bark is very thick and designed to withstand fires. Ground fires benefit the forests in many ways and in some cases are vital to the survival of several species. For example, they remove low-growing

underbrush to open it up to sunlight, reduce competition by adding nutrients to the soil, prevent large damaging wildfires that can completely destroy forests by eliminating fuel sources, and restore health to the forest by clearing out the weaker trees and debris. They also allow for new grasses, herbs and shrubs to regenerate, which provides new food and habitat, increases the water supply and raises stream levels.

“Some plants and trees cannot release their seeds or cones won’t open without the heat and flames, so fires are now regarded as a natural disturbance...” There are fewer plants to compete over it and kill tree diseases and insect infestations such as the pine beetle that prey on them. Fires can also affect the soil by burning the overhead vegetation, leading to increased sunlight on the surface by day and greater cooling through the loss of that heat at night. Fewer leaves will allow more rain to reach the soil surface and plant transpiration will be reduced, allowing the soil to retain more

moisture. However, exposure to sunlight, wind and evaporation will dry the soil and an impermeable crust on the soil surface may be created if organic matter on the ground was heated by the fire into a waxy residue, which can lead to increased erosion through runoff. Microbes vary in their heat tolerance, but are more likely to survive deeper down. Nutrient loss happens through oxidation, volatilization, erosion and leaching by water, (temperatures must be very high to cause a significant loss of them), but they’re often replaced by the organic matter left behind in the fire. The minerals that were formerly part of the decaying plant matter become more soluble and available in the ash, and charcoal counteracts some of the nutrient and water loss due to its absorptive properties. Soils tend to have a higher pH after a fire because of acid combustion and fires can also alter the texture and structure of soils by affecting the clay content and the soil’s properties. So it’s not all bad when it burns. It just depends on how bad and how close they are to us!

Recreation is an important part of being physically and mentally healthy. It is well known and supported by evidence that physical inactivity is one of the biggest risk factors for chronic disease such as heart disease and diabetes. Recreation also helps us reduce stress and anxiety. But did you also know that recreation plays a key role in the health of our communities? Social isolation is also a risk factor for chronic disease. Individuals and communities are healthier when members feel connected to each other. In fact, social connectedness is just as important for our health as diet and exercise. Recreation offers opportunities for a community to connect. Local governments can play a key role in supporting and creating opportunities for social connectedness in our communities. Community members can encourage and support local governments to create policies, planning, programs and community design that promote social connectedness. Recreational activities can be physical, social, cultural or artistic. Community infrastructure such as parks, libraries, bicycle pathways, playing fields and community centres are just a few examples of how local governments can support the health of its citizens and the social connectedness of a community. June is Parks and Recreation Month, the perfect time to start including more recreation in our everyday lives. We are especially fortunate in B.C. to have incredible open spaces and beautiful parks to explore natural forms of recreation in all seasons. So grab a neighbour or two and get out there and enjoy! Providing opportunities for recreation is one of several ways citizens and governments can help create a healthy community. If you want to learn more, visit PlanH (http://planh.ca). Have fun! -The author, Julie Steffler, is a community health facilitator with Interior Health.

Thieves target vehicles By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAFF

An opportunistic thief or thieves are taking what isn’t theirs from Chase vehicles. Sgt. Gary Heebner of Chase RCMP reports that thefts from vehicles are a problem, with 21 recorded from June 7 to July 7. He said that during the same period, break and enters to homes and businesses reported to police were relatively low at a total of six – five homes and one business. “Somebody is going out and about in the middle of the night picking from open, unlocked vehicles,” he said, noting that a lot of people have been leaving vehicle windows open at night. “It’s primarily a crime of opportunity.” To combat the stealing spree, the Chase detachment is increasing its patrols. Normally not a 24-hour detachment, that’s going to change. “We’re going to 24hour patrols until we can get a handle on

n On Tuesday, July 14 Chase Citizens on Patrol held their general meeting where chairman Rollie Mockford addressed fellow volunteers and a number of citizens who attended. On the agenda was the rash of thefts in Chase. The group also discussed the need for more young volunteers to join Citizens on Patrol. this,” said Heebner. Normally an officer is on call at night but now someone will be out on shift overnight. “We’re almost to the size where it would be good to go to 24 hours but we don’t have the resources to do it,” he said, so the 24-hour patrols will be a temporary measure. Heebner said police have also reached out to the volunteer Citizens on Patrol group to see

if they would be able to increase patrols. “Just to be eyes and ears for us.” Chairperson Rollie Mockford said he was pleased to see citizens come out to the group’s general meeting Tuesday. More volunteers are needed, he emphasized, before the group can realistically consider expanding its patrol hours. If you would like to help out, call Mockford

at 250-679-8467. Heebner said things the thieves have been taking include wallets, binoculars, cash, “stuff people really shouldn’t be leaving in cars. It’s a matter of complacency. It’s a small town and people think it’s okay to leave stuff in vehicles. It’s a crime of opportunity.” If someone witnesses a theft taking place, they’re asked to call 911 and not try to intervene.

Shopping locally employs your neighbors, reducing their carbon footprints as well. Another benefit to shopping locally that’s often overlooked is the impact it can have on your neighbors’ carbon footprint. Local businesses often employ members of the community, which translates to shorter commutes, less highway congestion and less fuel consumption. So while shopping locally reduces your carbon footprint, it’s also helping members of your community reduce their own potentially negative impact on the environment.

They pay the same as any other industrial user, in fact the highest industrial rate, and it goes for anything from hydraulic fracturing to bottled water, those involved in mining for example, any of those heavy industrial uses.” She warned that those demanding an increase in the rate of $2.25 per 1,000 cubic metres of water should understand the risk that B.C. could lose control of the resource.

Premier Christy Clark has promised a review of rates charged for water used in bottling, after an online petition called on the government to increase the nominal rate the province will collect starting next year. Swiss conglomerate Nestlé will pay the same rate as other industrial water users for its bottled water operation near Hope, but as largest water bottler in B.C. the it has been singled out for protest as drought conditions continue across the province. An online campaign by SumOfUs. org, which calls itself a global consumer watchdog, has gathered more than 200,000 signatures since February, which the group planned to to deliver to the Langley constituency office of Environment Minister Mary Polak this week.
